Programming k8055 in delphi

I’ve got a problem. I want to write a program to control my k8055 and I like to do so in delphi.
But, I don’t know how to get delphi in a cheap way.
Does anyone has please suggestions???

why delphi when there are free alternatives?

luckily I found out that microsofts visual basic express is free, real free. So I have decided to use visual basic!
